We spend a lot of time at work and in work relationships. For some people, work is almost like a second home. Many people report that the intensity of their work relationships rivals that of their best friends and partners.
Many executives have developed skills for working through challenges with work relationships. The “soft skills”, as they are sometimes referred to, are crucial to career development. But stressful events both on and off the job coupled with even a single “wild card” work relationship– one that is confusing, tumultuous, unpredictable, or just plain awful, can cause misery for even the most seasoned executive.
If your work relationships need improvement, then it’s important that you take steps to do something about it. Sometimes all that is needed is a strategy or a plan for how to approach and navigate the intensity of certain complex situations. Other times, specialized communication skills are needed to assess and approach the individual.
